Welcome to the Cordell Hull Birthplace State Park

Cordell Hull was Secretary of State during the Franklin Delano Roosevelt administration. He is considered the Father of the United Nations, and the Norwegian Nobel Committee presented the 1945 Nobel Prize for Peace to Hull in recognition of his work in the Western Hemispheres, for his International Trade Agreements, and for his efforts in establishing the United Nations.

Cordell Hull (October 2, 1871-July 23, 1955) was born in a log cabin in present day Pickett County, Tennessee. The cabin has been restored to what is believed to be it’s original conformation and is open for viewing.

A museum on the grounds houses photos, documents and artifacts from Secretary Hull’s life, including the Nobel Peace Prize.

In addition to the historic section of the park, there is a scenic trail to spectacular Bunkum Cave where Cordell Hull’s father made moonshine.

Bunkum Cave visitation requires a permit issued from the Park Manager's Office to protect the bats.

Five off-season concerns for Dallas CowboysThe Cowboys’ No.Doug Baldwin Jersey 1 priority this off-season centers on finding a capable backup behind Tony Romo. They whiffed on doing so this season, as Brandon Weeden,James Harrison Jersey Matt Cassel and Kellen Moore combined to go 1-11 in place of Romo. The Cowboys could explore several options to fill the void, including Moore (who got a vote of confidence from Jerry Jones following the season finale).AJ McCarron Jersey But they could also draft a quarterback, as they have the fourth overall pick in the first round and subsequent rounds. Or they could try to acquire a reclamation project such as Johnny Manziel or Robert Griffin III,Chandler Jones Jersey among others. Tony Romo fractured his left collarbone twice this season, limiting him to only two full games.DeMarcus Ware Jersey He said he would have been available had the Cowboys made the playoffs. Wide receiver Dez Bryant also had an injury-plagued year, playing in only nine games after fracturing his right foot in the season opener and dealing with knee/ankle issues upon returning.Jason Witten Jersey Both Romo and Bryant are expected to be ready for the off-season programs, and their health ranks as a top concern going into next season. The Cowboys saw just how difficult it is to win without them.Rashad Jennings Jersey This is the Cowboys’ highest draft position since 1991, and they can’t afford to miss on any of their early-round picks. The hope,Randall Cobb Jersey after all, is they’re not in this situation again. But the Cowboys face interesting decisions in the draft.Kawann Short Jersey Do they try to add a “win-now” piece with the Tony Romo/Jason Witten window closing? Or do they look at possibly taking a developmental piece such as a quarterback? The Cowboys will have several intriguing options at fourth overall,Chris Hogan Jersey ranging from an impact defensive back to a play-making linebacker to a versatile wide receiver to, of course, a quarterback of the future.
